Projections in the environment

This PhD study by JEFF LEAK will enquire into video projections/installations that predominantly focus on graphic messages and memes. This transient art form seeks to layer dynamic information over physical spaces. Such projections can be initiated using internal/interior spaces and intimate settings but also can be undertaken on large external sites within urban settings.

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

This research seeks to investigate and analyse the practice of designers and artists creating projected installations and guerrilla interventions within the environment and then to use this understanding to inform and influence the production of a body of new work. 

The primary objectives of this research are:

1 - To investigate the historical context of projected graphics.

2 - To examine and analyse the relationship between projection, the host environmentand the audience.

3 - To understand the significance of and influence of projected graphic work and usethis to create new projected installations.
